    Has anyone ever taken Stim O Stam? What were your results from it, did it help muscle soreness or make you feel stronger while using it , etc?

    Never heard of it till now. But just reading about it, it doesn't sound safe at all.

    At first, the only info I could find about it online (other than the company's website) was a few cyclist forums where a couple guys said it helped with their leg cramps on long distance rides.

    Then I found this:
    http://journals.lww.com/acsm-msse/Abstract/1986/12000/Effects_of_phosphate_loading_on_leg_power_and_high.12.aspx

    And this:
    http://www.letsrun.com/forum/flat_read.php?thread=1070523

    Seems like it's about as effective as a placebo.

    And the dangers:
    http://www.mamashealth.com/environmentalhealth/phosphates.asp (last two paragraphs on page)
    "The Dangers of Phosphates
    There are a variety of problems that can arise from excessive amounts of phosphates in your diet. Dry mouth is usually the first symptom followed by loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. Constipation and then, diarrhea can occur. You will also become very thirsty due to the loss of fluids and will urinate much more frequently."

    this actually helped a lot because like you said I couldn't find any side effects or anything the only thing I found about it was the actual website and of course they wont let you know if it can be harmful to you.

    They may that, but they are bad for the environment. They cause eutrophication, encouraging algae growth in waters.

    I know, it was tongue-in-cheek (meaning I wouldn't drink anything containing phosphates)
